They probably are
still on the SD card, but the apps directory index was overwritten in the main memory. Also, the app data is usually stored in main memory, so you would still loose your data settings part.

Read card on a computer and see if you find .apk files on the sd card. they may be hidden files. but you can not recover the data settings part unfortunately.

preventative backup is always the best. If they are google apps, make sure you backup to google in your google account settings
use your carrier backup to cloud for phones.

I just updated my iPad to iOS 11 and now when I try and playWords With Friends it says the developer needs to update Words With Friends to work with iOS11. Please update. Thank you.

Go to the APP Store and get the new iOS11 version. The reason you don't get a prompt to update is because this is not an upgrade to the old App, it is a brand new 64bit version.

Why can't I play my old version on iOS 11? - Zynga Support
... we suggest that you download our newest version of the game since the iOS 11 will no longer support the 32-bit apps - Words With Friends HD (iPad), Words.

I updated my iPad to 11.0 and now I can’t play words HD free. It’s says I have to update words. How do I do that.

It seems that the app has not been updated to 64bit which is the technology the code is written in. IOS11 is the first version of IOS that expects only 64bit apps not the older 32bit.
To update goto the appstore and check under updates. If you see none you'll need to wait and see if the app is updated or find an alternative.

You should make sure that your iPad is running the latest firmware version. Also, make sure that your apps, especially the one you are having trouble with, is fully updated. These updates cover problems the software is having.

Go to "settings", then to "general" then to "software update".
2. To check on you apps update status, go to the "app store" icon,

I can not get my literati to join with my network

It needs the latest firmware 1.9 or 2.0 for the wireless to work correctly. The solution is to get the usb to work first. Plug and unplug the usb, try powering on with usb plugged in until you get the pc to recognize the drive in the literati. Once you get to this point you have it made. Browse the drive and find the "Desktop Installers" folder run the windows install - the pc will then go out to the internet and get the desktop software version that can update the literati. Once the desktop software finishes installing it will tell you that the literati must be updated. Let it do it. Power off literati or reset it. When it comes up again the desktop software will say there is another update. This one is a big one. After it finishes Power off or reset literati again and it will load the newest firmware and the device works much better afterward. Also, you might want to keep it plugged in to power while you do this - Don't want it to lose power during firmware update.

How do yo update the flas softwer

As posted to another person, download this .apk file and install it on your A70 (It must be running 2.2 froyo firmware to work, if running 2.1 you need different .apk).
It'll give you Google Market, where you can download Adobe Flash Player that updates itself... i've had 2 updates from flash since Dec 25th upon getting this.

Link: With Archos 70 Internet Tablet, you need to download a specific version of Adobe Flash Player from Google Market since it runs Android OS. And A70 doesn't come with GMarket, rather Appslib, which doesn't quite cut it.

Luckily someone has made a neat little .apk file thath as Google Market, which lets you download GMarket and download/install all its apps/games/etc on your A70.

Just download the following .apk file and install it on your A70, afterwards download Adobe Flash Player from Google Market. However, this hack ONLY works on 2.2 froyo android OS, so make sure your A70 firmware is up to date.

I'd also recommend installing Dolphin Browser HD as it seems to provide a more refined flash browsing experience coupled with the Adobe Flash Player.
